Gennadiy Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez faced off for the third time on Saturday, this time a division higher at super middleweight, and for the unified titles.

GGG moved up and came in on a four fight win streak since his loss in their second bout in 2018. Canelo’s last fight was a loss to Dmitry Bivol at light heavyweight, but still came in technically as the undisputed super-middleweight champion.

After a draw in the first outing and a Canelo win in the second, the third match was far more decisive.

Golovkin seemed a bit gun shy through stretches, with the 40-year-old looking more like his age. Canelo was faster and more crisp, landing far more good shots and picking him apart for the most part.

No knockdowns were scored, and it wasn’t very competitive for stretches. In the end, it reached the judges scorecards again, with Canelo winning decision that was somehow still very close.

Official Result: Canelo Alvarez def. Gennadiy Golovkin by unanimous decision (116-112, 115-113 x2)
